When I asked my mother for the recipe of this salad, her answer was as always: "Peel carrots, add cranberries, mustard and mix them all together." "Wait a minute", I said, "How much of each?" "So and So", she replied... Of course I could hand you recipes with "so and so" instead of quantities so that the next I came to visit we could make it together. We could take notes and know for certain how much of each ingredient is right. But the next time you ask for the recipe I will misplace the measurements, forget the ingredients." "Mum?" I would ask. "So and so", she would reply.
